Financial Compensation for Accident Claims
Accident claims for financial compensation are becoming more and more common, and it is an unfortunate truth that an unexpectedly high number of people in the UK will be involved in an accident at some point in their life.
If this accident occurred through no fault of your own, you may be entitled to make an accident claim for personal injury compensation.
It is strongly recommended that you seek the advice of a solicitor specialising in personal injury accident claims, as the backing of an expert could substantially affect the amount of compensation you receive.
They will provide you with excellent advice and guidance, and be able to assess the likelihood of your accident claim to succeed.
The amount awarded for personal injury accident claims varies greatly from case to case, even if the cases seem to be relatively similar.
This is because the compensation you are awarded is based on each individual’s pain and suffering, as well as any financial loss occurring as a result of the accident. This could be due to unforeseen medical bills, or resulting from an inability to work after the accident.
No Win No Fee Accident Claims
Because of the increasing number of personal injury accident claims made each year, many solicitors will now take on your claim on a No Win No Fee basis.
This means that if your case is successful, your solicitor should ensure that you keep 100% of the compensation awarded, as their costs will be recovered from the other side.
A No Win No Fee solicitor will offer a free consultation where they will assess how likely your case is to succeed. Their commission, known as a ‘success fee’ will be based on how risky it is to take on your case.
They will rarely take on a case that is unlikely to succeed as this would create lots of extra unpaid work.
